On the flip side, you could argue that there should be no variance from year to year and that a contract that has an avg of 7M a year should pay 7M each year.
Wouldn't that have unavoidable consequences in other years of the contract when they have to offset the lower pay with higher pay? The issue with back-diving contracts is that there are currently no future consequences.
